TecMate OptiMate Lithium 0.8A Battery Optimiser (SAE)
Customer Product Reviews
Nice bit of kit
This is a nice bit of kit and is invaluable if you are using a lithium battery. I wish that I had read some reviews when I bought a Lithium battery a few years ago and is now useless. The charger is well made and the included leads are plenty long enough. The instruction say to keep the charger as far away from the battery as possible.
Revived my battery!
Seems to have saved my 8 year old Shorai lithium battery. 1st cycle through the charger indicated the battery was faulty, which may well have been the case but repeating the process seems to have saved it. Even if the battery is past it I'll be replacing it so this charger has either paid for itself or will be very handy in future. Feels a quality piece of kit. Very simple to use, I'd recommend reading the instructions in advance to understand the meaning of the charger's lights.
Optimate lithium charger
Excellent delivery from Sportsbikeshop, used in conjunction with lithium battery, fitted the charging lead to the battery, but not used it yet as battery came fully charged, it really feels like a quality charger
Absolutely brilliant! It revived an empty li-po (1volt) that had died twice. It slowly charged it for 12-15 hours and now is fully recovered. Classic charger for normal batteries could not charge it. It recognized it as a faulty battery.
I used this on my shido lithium battery and charged and maintained it quickly. I had no worries of it overheating like other chargers / batteries. Sportsbikeshop sent it out quickly also. I would highly recommend this charger for anyone with a lithium ion battery.
Does the Job well
I purchased this product instead of the more expensive one after being advised by the sportsbikeshop.co.uk staff. I really appreciate this because it shows a high level of customer care. The product itself is easy to set up, reliable and works properly. The supplied connectors are great too. I have used optimate products before and it is a brand I trust.
Excellent product, excellent service
I bought this charger to use on the Aliant YLP 07 battery for which I have submitted a separate review, my usage requirements being somewhat different from the norm. I will use this to power the Keiss heated jacket as a pedestrian option. The Optimate is straightforward to use, and is safe to leave switched on as it goes through its test cycle every thirty minutes if not charging. I dealt with Sophie at SBS, and had the usual excellent service as always, both battery and charger arriving the next day. The Optimate range of chargers and accessories are an excellent product, - purchase with confidence.
Piece of cake charger
Bought this to initially charge and maintain a new lithium battery, just does everything automatically, just checked the lights against the manual to get an understanding of what's what and waited for a full charge. Piece of cake to use.
